O give thanks unto the Lord; call upon his name: make known his deeds among the people. (Psalm 105:1)
The Bible & Science (Part 11)
When we feel poorly, after asking God for His healing grace, encouragement and guidance, we usually check the medicine cabinet or call our doctor for added relief. The last thing we would think to do is to look for a good (clean) joke and have a hearty laugh about our ailment. Yet, in an article titled “Laughter: Prescription for Health,” The Birmingham News reported the latest medical evidence as indicating that at some point during laughter our body issues “a prescription” from the pharmacy in our brain. What medical science had failed to acknowledge is that 3,000 years earlier, the writer of Proverbs already told us laughter was a prescription for good health: “A merry heart doeth good like a medicine” (Proverbs 17:22). Chase the blues away by thinking of the positive things in your life, especially rejoicing in the salvation for His followers that Jesus Christ paid such a high price for! –by John Russo, revised from the tract “The Bible: That Amazing Book,” by Terry Watkins

Preaching This Morning
Bro. Jonathan Guinn will be preaching during this morning’s service. He has both taught Sunday School and preached in the past and the Lord has greatly used Him to communicate His truth. Pray for him and for our church family as he preaches this morning.
Next Sunday following the preaching in the evening service, we will observe the Lord’s Supper.
For as often as ye eat this bread, and drink this cup, ye do shew the Lord’s death till he come. (1 Corinthians 11:26)

Walk With God Every Day!
And all the days of Enoch were three hundred sixty and five years: And Enoch walked with God: and he was not; for God took him. (Genesis 5:23, 24)
In a chapter (Genesis 5) filled with men living to be anywhere from 777-969 years old, Enoch is the youngest! Enoch never died, but instead “was translated that he should not see death” (Hebrews 11:5). Paying attention to the details of God’s word reveals a great devotional truth about Enoch. Enoch “walked with God” and lived to be 365 years old prior to God taking Him to Heaven, illustrating for us the best way to live – walking with God every day, 365 days a year!
